#15279 of 15564 2012 Pilot EXL 4WD $30555
Nov 11, 2012 (6:07 pm)
$30555 + $349 doc +$100 transfer plates + tax
I got the price via internet. 2 dealers offered - Boch in MA and Peters Honda in NH offered to match Boch's price via internet + give a lifetime powertrain warranty.
I was actually in the car on the way to Peters to get the car but I called ahead to check on the deal one last time (I had spent an entire day emailing back & forth with Peters' internet rep). When I told her I wanted to confirm because I didn't want to be disappointed after driving 1 hour, she said they couldn't match after all, they would be taking a $4k loss, etc. etc. Good thing I didn't get all the way there - I would have been RIPPED. I gave her an earful for wasting my time and offering to match a price if they really couldn't.
Changed direction and drove to Boch. Good buying experience. Never had to speak to anyone by phone until I went into the store to buy the car. All price negotiations done by email. They didn't try to negotiate ANYTHING when I got there - I told them up front I didn't want accessories, etc., and they didn't bother trying. They just honored the price they quoted. I told the finance guy I didn't want the "service" plan - he said he had to go through the options because it was company policy but he did it quickly for me. No problems. Took longer than it should have waiting around for finance, etc., but still pretty smooth.
Good luck. Not many 12's left.

Will the 2014 model year be a complete redesign? The 2014 Pilot will debut in fall of 2013.

NJ chiming in here. Just picked up a Honda Pilot EX 4wd price: 30,028 but with Tax / Title / Etching / Document Fee = 34,040$ OTD.
Picked up Running boards for an additional 999$
So altogether 35,039$
Do you think that was a good price? I feel like we could have done better.

We need a new thread for the 2014 Pilot slated for debut in the summer of 2013.

I got a quote for a new Honda 2013 Pilot EX 4WD without additional options at $29506 + destination fee $830 + tax + document fee and title/tag in PA/NJ area, MSRP is $ 34100, invoice is $31251. Is it possible that I can get OTD (out of door) at ~ 31k? Anyone has the recent purchase experience?

I used Edmunds and KBB to request a dealer quote. Had 2 dealers reply in 15 min and 3 more within a day in the Charlotte, NC area.
Best price at the moment. 2013 EX 4WD is $28,922, +$830 destination, +$500 doc fee, +$950 to add leather, and they threw in the trailer wiring harness. Don't forget the .9% Honda financing !
Every dealer offered to price match, but figured the one who offered the best price on their own deserves my business.

I am looking for 2013 Pilot EX 4WD without any additional options.
It looks like that ~32K for OTD will be a good deal.
Anyone can help me for the price range, if you have a recent purchase experience?
Thanks a lot.
It is really a pain for purchasing a new car and negotiating with dealers, I really wish I could buy a car like buying an item in a department store, just pay the list price. In that case, the delers will lose their job, it is not good.

Just bought a 2013 2WD Touring for $38.5k (~$37k for base touring plus $1.5k for tint, wheel locks, door edge protectors, plus package, blah blah).

I hear complete redesign to look like all the damn copycat crossovers aka ford escape, Tucson ad nauseous. I love my 2010 BIG PILOT and hate the downsized crossovers. I am sorely tempted to buy a 2013 but I can't part with my loaded Pilot.
